Okay, just a quick one here.....
I have finally, years after the idea, been able to rehabilitate the back room of my house.
I chose a beautiful shade of super-pale aqua called "Blue Whisper".
The room is a sunroom. There are windows on all sides (except North) - I won't go into the details, as they will bore to tears anyone who hasn't
rehabbed a house.......
but, let's just say that rehabbing old houses has been one of my life's "hobbies."
So - yeah - my house is 77 years old - and this room was a sort of slap-dash construct add-on from 58.
the walls (exterior and interior) have now been replaced, a new window installed, fresh roof and fresh ceiling - fresh insulation, electrical outlets
and lights, gutters......
So yeah, this paint is so lovely - depending on the light and the section of wall (which has 3 different textures) it is mesmerizing. I finally got
it done just before noon today. I'm spending the afternoon going to check on it. Yesterday we watched it with sun streaming in....today I'm
watching it with overcast skies. So far, I am delighted.
Do you guys know the feeling? Where just the color and the light are so intriguing. My house is an expression of my personality. I told Mr Wigs
that yesterday - although it is genuinely painful (mentally) for him to part with the money, the delight of having actual, physical, real "estate"
(get it?) quality is (to me) more significant.
Wall Street could crash tomorrow, but we will still have this house, this physical shelter and whatever joy and comfort it has to offer....bought it
in 1999. It needed a tremendous amount of work. To have the entire main floor finally rehabbed is a wonderful feeling.
To watch the light playing off of the walls - all different textures and exposures is awesomely enjoyable.
I highly recommend taking the time to watch paint dry.
Live a little.
